What I find ironic is that these are the same people who reject the preferred pronouns of people who are transgender.

"These men want to be called she! They're not the bosses of us! They can't police our language! If you have a penis between your legs, I am going to call you a man, whether you like it or not!"

"Please, don't call us Mormons. That is a name imposed on us by outsiders. Call us members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints."

Yeah, fuck you, Mormon hypocrites. I'm not going to use that ridiculously long, super conceited name while you're so dismissive of other peoples' identities.

I dismiss all people's so called identities, particularly on the Internet.

Actually, that is true.  You can't FORCE people to call transgenders "him or her" according to what they want to be called.  You have to CONVINCE people to use the right words.  Think about that.  Then think of strategies to convince other people to use the right words.

I spend some waking hours thinking about how to make "atheist" a positive term.  It is sure going to take a lot of time.  But we will get there someday.  And I bet you "Queers" get there first.  Because you are demanding it better than we atheists are.

Any group can call themselves (among themselves) anything they want.  But they don't get to choose what other people call them. 

If they can, you will all hereby refer to me as ALL POWERFUL COMMANDER OF THE GALAXIES BEYOND ALL FEAR AND HORRIBLE OBEDIENCE INTO THE WELL OF PAIN SHOULD YOU DOUBT THE LEAST BIT OF YOUR WILL".

Bet that doesn't work too well either...

Well, at least it rolls trippingly off the tongue...

The phrase "freedom of religion" means "no freedom from religion."

Well, if if APCOTGBAFAHOITWOPSYDTTLBOYW doesn't say it concisely, what can?  Better than "I Am Groot" over and over again.
